Property Description

These detached holiday properties lie within the beautiful award-winning grounds of the owners’ home (Horsleygate Hall) in Holmesfield, on the edge of the Peak District. Gin Cottage (ref RB2) has exposed beams, trusses and a wood-burning stove, all with a hand-painted mural and a galleried first floor bedroom. It also has its own secluded courtyard shaped around the original gin wheel. Orchard Cottage (ref QWM) is a cosy, beamed cottage with its own terrace overlooking orchards, and has been converted from 18th-century stables and furnished in traditional style. It lies within this picturesque and tranquil country location, which offers award-winning gardens to walk around, wonderful views at every turn and close proximity to both the city of Sheffield (10 minutes) and lots of charming Derbyshire villages in the Peak District and countryside, including the Chatsworth Estate (10 minutes) offering the best of both worlds: gardens, theatre, culture, history, walking, climbing, golf, horse riding, fishing, gliding, photography, wildlife spotting, sightseeing and more. There is a large selection of local pubs and restaurants. The owners offer local produce (milk, free range eggs, bread, logs and papers) by prior arrangement. Welcome grocery packs from local producers/food artisans and the on-site kitchen gardens also by arrangement. Hot cooked meals on arrival can be provided (fees apply). Easy access from Sheffield and Chesterfield train stations and car hire, driver or taxi service by arrangement (fee applies). Horse riding stables are 350 yards away, and the owner has stables on site if guests wish to bring a horse. Shops 3 miles, pub 350 yards.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.

Beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove leading to fitted Scandinavian-style kitchen. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Open-tread stairs to first floor: Beamed double bedroom with low door leading to gallery with futon-bed (for +1).
